I may indeed like it. And I disagree that the game isn’t really dependent on the system because the system is the game. I don’t think D20 Deadlands is terrible in and of itself. I can’t think of any adaptation of an already existing system into the D20 ruleset that didn’t turn out to be terrible. A Savage Tale set in Wichita, Kansas, in which several people have fallen into comas, and the locals claim that the Devil is coming to claim their souls.

There are a couple of free adventures available for it: The rules reflect that.

Pleased to see my cree for Torg on here, but I think it should be moved to a different section, because it’s a fan work for a converted setting that isn’t licensed. Class systems bundle abilities into archetypal packages. Well, those are fantasy games, If I’m going for realism like in a western or something modern, I like it to be gritty and fatal. Boxed set including maps and rulebooks for setting adventures in New Orleans or on a Mississippi riverboat, as well as an adventure and rules for voodoo.

I don’t know how to shrink the quote. Maps and information on seven minor towns around the Weird West, as well as rules and tools for quickly creating new towns on the fly. I understand how free-form character creation d220 and I like it but I also like classes too.

How many versions are there and are they that varied? Any other set of the game’s rules is going to be way less obnoxious and detailed than d20’s. I found a few good one sheets, but all the “dime novel” adventures i find are for deadlands classic. SW still works dice and poker chips where it can.


The game was deadlandz released using its own custom rules, and has since dearlands published using the d20 systemGURPS daedlands Savage Worlds rules. And then took as many of those spells as I could. I enjoy both of them and the players in both games have fun and that’s really why we play isn’t it? Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet.

If my players are willing to learn the system it definitely seems like a viable option. But yes I also enjoyed it.


A Savage Tale in which the posse travel to Mexico, avoid the foreign legion and get mixed up in a revolution. A good enough compromise, I think, though I’m not too familiar with it. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy.

The posse find themselves on a train packed with Mad Scientists, travelling to Fref Scientific Exposition, all competing for a contract with Hellstromme Industries. A Plot Point campaign which involves the posse in the Deadlamds Rail Wars and the battle to secure California’s ghost rock supplies, pitting them against the evil Reverend Grimme.

Last edited by Zadmar ; Right now for Deadlands they have one called “The Flood” that takes place in California.

By dividing characters by their “various blessings” as you say, you can bundle what you might consider hucksters to want every discrete level, but that implies that every huckster would want to improve in similar ways.

Just a personal preference, I like fantasy games to be high powered. A huge pool of skills, spells, and edges to choose from mean that no two characters will probably be alike yes they’ll share some similarities.

Ronan finds himself aboard the legendarily haunted Night Train. A Dime Novel – In a small town on Mount Frostbite, the posse must solve a series of murders which may lead back to an old evil in the town’s history.


Why is D20 Deadlands terrible? This is my understanding of what’s been posted so far. I’m gonna learn a little about the system and then ask my players what they would prefer.

The following are the rulebooks and expansions published for the game. It all depends on how its run. Information for setting adventures in the Distinguished Collegium of Interspatial Physics, as well as new inventions and expanded rules for Mad Scientist characters. Hot Wheels and Eye of the Jaguar https: I’d prefer not paying for them, as I deadlannds want a few so I can get accustomed to this new system.

Includes a tie-in feee for Deadlands: As you say, the archetype thing isn’t that far off the vibe of Deadlands, but for somebody coming at it from a skill-based system mindset already, classes don’t add anything. I’ve been looking over the Savage worlds c20 recently and can see what you’re saying. Basically all the same capabilities within all the classes save for the flavor text accompanying it.

Have you played any other non class games?

There is some making things up for the GM[2]. Funny how you got on here before Steven did, Phil. If it’s not too 4th edition, I’m strongly considering researching it. Information, maps and adventure ideas for locations in Mexico, including several Savage Tales and a mini Plot Point campaign.

We both had fun, had different stuff to do and got along fine until my character ended up under a steam wagon. I’ve also written some free tools and supplements.
